Re: The proposals, benefits, drawbacks etc.

I read both articles in Cycle last night. There was nothing in the "Pro" article that persuaded me that this was a good idea. If anything it turned me more towards the no camp. I think that the aims of the Trust are very different from what I think the aims of the Club should be. I wouldn'...

Re: Rohloff - How to go faster?

I had a ride on one of Hubber's bikes at the York Rally. I didn't find it sluggish for the sort of bike that it was (a fairly heavy frame with fat tyres) and it was nice to ride. I'm not sure what hub gear that one had in it, an 8 speed one I think. I'd certainly consider a hub gear for an all weath...

The DSK has only been "proved" superior in tests done by Dvorak himself. Funny that. The QWERTY keyboard isn't as bad as made out, and most of the problems caused by it when investigated turn out to be because of poor hand positioning and seating position. All of which are covered in any s...

Several of our machines use Shimano medium drop dual pivots - the one which fits a 28C tyre plus mudguards. It behaves very well, maybe slightly less brute grunt than my long arm cantis but not much, and feedback through the levers is far better. I'm in N Derbys too so the comparison's valid, I've ...

Ah. Not a football fan, so I wouldn't know about that.

I've got a (non-freeview) hard disk recorder box though, and that's very good. Never had a problem with it. It's currently connected to a set top box, so it's possible to record freeview channels.

I ditched top-up TV. The channels are rubbish, as they're only on air at weird times of the day. So on the rare occasion the channel is showing something you want to see, you can't see it because it's not being broadcast on top-up at that time.

I found it Junk, and got rid of it.

Heh. This is an old one, but a good one. I asked my daughter the other day. "Why don't polar bears eat penguins?" She replied. "Because polar bears live at the north pole, and penguins live at the south pole, silly daddy" So I told her she was wrong. "Polar bears don't eat P...

Michelin A1 tyres

I'm unsure of the exact name of these tyres, as all that's marked on the outside is "A1". It's a 700/25. Bought from Halfords as an emergency replacement. Personally I'd never buy another one. The side wall is paper thin, it crumples in a way I've never seen in another tyre before. It seem...

Re: nobody's perfect

Yeah but if you check out the 2008 Galaxy on the Dawes website (http://www.dawescycles.com/dawes/galaxy-1.htm) they say it comes with STI shifters, but the picture clearly has bar-end shifters. Moreover, if you look at any other bicycle retailers website they have all copied the same error from Daw...

Ah but hulver I never said I was a veggie, just trying to keep off red meats and dairy fats due to high cholesterol.
